a great weekend. "happening now" starts right now. jon: a fox news alert. breaking news now on the deadly terror attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. fox news sources telling us cia officers on the ground in benghazi during the attack sent requests for help but were denied. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is live at the pentagon with more on this. jennifer. >> reporter: hi, jon. well sources who were on the ground in benghazi during the attack tell fox news that in fact there were three separate requests to aid not only the attack that was occurring at the consulate and to try to help with that attack but also requests for outside help, outside military help to help once there were gunfire and firefights at the cia annex. those requests, we're told, came from higher headquarters. they were told to stand down. as you know, glen doherty and tyrone woods, the former navy seals were over at the cia annex at about 9:40 p.m. when the first shots were heard at the consulate where the ambassador and his team were taking fire. i'm told that they radioed to their higher headquart
on fox news channel. have a great weekend. purple friday. >> take care. jon: right now on this friday, brand new stories and breaking news. jenna: including the fierce fight in kentucky on two men who want to be vice president. with the dust settling we have new reaction to their debate. >>> disturbing developments in the search for the 10-year-old colorado girl who vanished on her way to school. what the fbi is asking people to look for now. >>> plus the latest in the growing meningitis outbreak we've been paying such close attention to. it is all happening now. jenna: very happy friday to you, everybody, i'm jenna lee. jon: and i'm jon scott. the race for the white house intensifies after sparks fly at the one and only vice-presidential debate. more on that in a moment. first let's see where the presidential contenders are today. president obama off the campaign trail, spending the day at the white house. just over an hour from now, governor romney attends a rally in the battle ground state of virginia. the latest "real clear politics" poll average shows the president holding a very
like matchboxes. unbelievable scene. hearts go out to everybody today. jon:. bill: i'm taken by bob turner. he and so many are going through a tough, tough time. hang in there people. martha: see you back here tomorrow, folks. jenna: fires and blizzard in the aftermath of the killer superstorm named sandy. we're glad you're with us everybody as our coverage continues on "happening now." i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. the damage is stagger two days after sandy slammed the entire east coast. neighborhoods are without power and flooded out. dramatic rooftops rescues in hard-hit areas like staten island, new york. new york city subways remain shut down for a second day because of massive flooding. new york not the only place struggling to recover from a monster storm that is blamed for 55 deaths. ohio feeling the sheer force of sandy did. this powerful storm knocked down trees, snapping power lines, leaving hundreds of thousands of folks in the dark there. that is drop this the bucket compared to more than eight million who have no power. at the height of the storm. some as far away
alarms on "the daily show" with his awkward response when jon stewart challenged him about benghazi. >> i would say even you would admit it was not the optimal response, at least to the american people, as far as us all being on the same page? >> well here's what i'll say. >> yeah. >> if four americans get killed it's not optimal and we're going to fix it. >> right. >> all of it. >> all of it. >> midwest firewall, 18 days to go our polls. today while romney preps for the final debate, the president is hitting him hard in virginia. >> we've got to name this condition that he's going through. i think -- i think it's called romnesia. that's what it's called. i think that's what he's going through. i'm not a medical doctor, but i do want to go over some of the symptoms with you because i want to make sure nobody else catches it. >> mitt romney and paul ryan are both in florida and they caught a key endorsement from "the "orlando sentinel"" today. and what a kick. >> that was a high schooler, a washington state high school football player kicking his way into the record books, nailing a 6-yard
they do there. what is the wisdom of the president going on jon stewart where he's speaking to his base and then getting a serious question as you will get from jon stewart, a serious person about benghazi, and adopting the answer the word optimal from jon stewart's question to give him that, but it's still shows a lack of command of the moment. take a look at this. >> i would say even you would admit it with you not the optimal response, at least to the american people, as far as us all being on the same page. >> here's what i'll say. >> yeah. >> if four americans get killed, it's not optimal. >> right. >> and we're going to fix it. >> right. >> and -- >> all of it. >> all of it. >> and john mccain and others are all over him. let's watch what john mccain said on fox today. >> the optimal line, of course, is very regrettable and makes me a little sad, but for him to say that every piece of information that they got they laid out to the american people, is one of the most disingenuous statements i've ever heard. >> chris. >> yeah. >> the ap has a story which pulls together a lot of thre
show's" jon stewart in reference to the killings in libya that when four americans get killed, it is not optimal. senators john mccain and kelly ayotte are here to talk about that. first it's happening again, governor mitt romney starting to see a surge from the debate. >> by the way, the new gallup poll is outs, and it's rom plus seven. this is not -- it is romney plus seven. this does not yet include that seven-day rolling average. romney is 52-45 over obama in the rolling gallup daily tracking. so i think obama, you need to keep talking about these binders. you need to keep talking about big bird. you need to keep talking about these insulting infantile irrelevant things. >> what president obama has been trying do from the spring on is not to offer the country a vision forward, it is not to say here's how we get out of debt, here's how we grow the economy, but just don't like mitt romney. he's basically trying do disqualify his opponent with his sea of negativity. he's trying to distract this country. he's trying to divide this country, pitsing people against each other. he
. also pulitzer prize winning historian jon meacham. we have three weeks to go until election day. and tonight, obviously, is the big debate. it's going to be a town hall-style debate. and some new polls are out. let's take a look at, again, we've got a shift possibly in the electoral map. this morning, a new "usa today" gallup poll shows growing momentum for mitt romney in the key battleground states, including ohio, florida, and virginia. the poll has romney pulling ahead by four points among likely voters. 50% to 46%. this is obviously a big shift. it's only one poll. but perhaps the bigger take away from this poll and some others is how the candidates are ranking among likely woman voters in those battleground states. we've heard an awful lot about the gender gap since the primary season, but among likely female voters in swing states, mitt romney's pulling almost even with the president. 48% to 49%, among male voters in the swing states, romney has an eight-point lead over the president. mark, let's start with you. you're reporting right now that senior democratic officials a
targeted. >> bill: when jon stewart begins mocking you liberal america takes notice. will the president's foreign policy bungles influence the upcoming vote? we'll have a special report. >> i find such a champion in president obama and which is why i passionately support him specifically because i'm a woman. >> bill: will the ladies put the president over the top on election day? that's what mr. obama is hoping. we'll have analysis. >> holding a book and trying to get my reading glasses to work. >> bill: we might be able to hire people to do that for you. shall i turn the page? "the factor" is all over the place today shaking things up on tv and radio. we'll show you how it went. >> that epic debate, the one with you and jon stewart, what are you doing to prepare? >> taking a nap. >> bill: caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. "the factor" begins right now. hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight's. is the president's foreign policy falling apart? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. jon stewart now mocking president obama over the libyan
john heilemann. and in nashville, i love nashville, pulitzer prize-winning historian jon meacham. meacham. should we go right there? >> in one second. i've -- we've got to set this up first for mike barnicle. we've all been saying the same thing. phone calls coming in last night from my democratic friends, independent friends, republicans, everybody's been asking the same thing, where did this come from? we've never seen this mitt romney before, but you say you have. >> yes, this is how mitt romney became governor of massachusetts in 2002 during a series of debates. he was exactly this way as he was last night. he came in prepared. he had a plan. he executed it. he was armed with specific information. he went right at the opponent. then it was shannon o'brien running for governor against him. and he did that again last night. effectively. >> and willie, he seemed, for the first time, comfortable in his skin. you know, we've been pounding mitt romney despite what chee-to eaters thought on the internet because he's had a horrible, horrible month. he was uncomfortable in his skin. l
is elected will be totally responsible for that. he went on "the daily though." this is what he said with jon stewart. >> obama: the stakes could not be bigger, war peace, supreme court, women's right to choose, whether we're creating jobs in this country or whether they're getting shipped overseas, whether our kids are getting the best education they can. all of that stuff is at stake. there is no excuse not to vote. >> of course there is no excuse not to vote. but you see the president being serious, presidential, and then stewart turns the conversation to libya and here is president obama with jon stewart. >> obama: here's what i have to say, before americans gets killed, it's not optimal. we're going to fix it. >> all of it. >> all of it. what happens during the course of the presidency, the government is a big operation at any given time something screws up and you make sure you find out what is broken and you fix it. >> you hear president obama say it's not optimal that's not a very sensitive word for him to use. it's not down playing something. all the president has done is talked abou
about it. >> he told jon stewart that every piece of information that his administration got tied to the terror attack on the consulate attack in benghazi was laid out to paint a picture of what happened . despite his administration confusing the response, the president was never confused about the fact four americans were killed and the fact that terrorist struck the consulate at all was not optmal. >> i would say you would admit it was not the optmalresponse as far as all of us being on the same page. >> here's what i would say. four americans get killed it is not optmaland we'll fix it. >> fox news said the administration knew within 24 hours that the raid was a terrorist attack and senator john mccain wants to know why if the president knew americans had been murdered by terrorist, he went on in mccain's words in every show in america to say they died in a spontanous administration . he took issue with the way the president described it on a comedy show. >> even from someone like the president who is never known what the tragedies are about and service and sacrifice that peopl
. jon husted decided to kick it down the road. we'll let it ride. if he decides to appeal, that will push the ultimate resolution of when you get to vote in ohio. it will push the resolution even closer to election day. we're already inside a month. he could just establish early voting hours, but why the rush? the election is still almost a month away. i have my hair to wash and stuff. by his own admission issue the later you change the rules before an election, the more pressure that puts on local elections officials to accommodate those rules. they have to publicize the hours, have the machines ready, the voters have to know when to vote. that's it the job of the elections board. ohio has had early voting for everyone since 2005. the secretary of state was already trying to get them to change from something they had been doing. now he's making it so they won't know what they will be able to do and whether they will go back to the way it used to work since 2005 or whether they will have shorter hours. he's making it so the local elections boards will not know any of those
happened when mitt romney challenged president obama on his response to the crisis in libya. well, jon stewart asked, shouldn't the words "please proceed, governor," from obama have served as some sort of tip off for mitt romney? apparently not. take a look. >> i think it's interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack, he went in the rose garden and said that this was an act of terror. you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror? it was not -- >> please proceed. >> is that what you're saying? >> please proceed. >> when you feel you're about to spring what you, governor romney, think is the checkmate moment of the debate and your debate opponent says to you "please proceed," are you trying to open that door? allow me to open it wider. when your opponent does that, you might want to take a breath and wonder if, a la wile e. coyote and the road runner, that door your opponent is pointing to is merely paint on a rock. >>> next, wisconsinite paul ryan is a green bay packers fan, but he praised on the browns. specifi
not proposed cutting contrary to what jon said. and meaning they would follow eligible children to any district or charter school or enable them to enroll in a tutoring program or take courses on line. this step would do three things immediately. first, it would render irrelevant a host of existing regulations on the use of title one funds in particular that burden school district in various ways and constrain innovation and make their lives more difficult and drive up administrative costs. secondly it would put the federal government behind principles that public education funding should be used to empower students, not to empower sluggish and change resistant bureaucracy. and if you eliminate a practical obstacle to creating waited student funding systems with a lot of people are trying to do at the state and local level in that obstacle is the lack of affordability of federal funds, the grants that would be available under affordability program proposals are relatively small. this is not something that would immediately generate large vouchers for all of 4 kids in america. it would accomplis
." well written. jon chait sitting with david corn, the author of "47 percent" as if it actually exists. >> it does, it does. >>. >> how much is it? >> 99 cents. >> read it in one night. >> jonathan you wrote that very well. when i was learning about the theory of b.s., if you will, that they're going to win it reminds me of that prince w. he announced we have the bush family the right to be president and i'm going to dictate through five weeks of recount that i am the president. is this what the other princely born guy is up to, romney. >> bush did that before the election, he went out to california, karl rove said he would win 320 electoral votes. >> my daddy said i'll be president, it's coming true. >> i went back and read something i wrote in 2000 when i was at "the new republic" at the time saying bush doesn't have it in the bag and i had to convince everyone he wasn't going to crush al gore, it was a surprising, shocking -- >> but this strategy of saying you've won before you've won creates an inevitability, i think it's ridiculously premature. we have two weeks and anything can h
is dangerous about it. you know, when president obama talked about the deaths in benghazi with jon stewart not being optimal, using that language, after a joke, a set joke where he said that's not very sexy in terms of something else, and stewart said you don't know what may be sexy to me. it demeans those kinds of -- four deaths should not be yuck yuck in the middle of a conversation on comedy central. >> on one hand, jon stewart is trying to get serious questions, not just a laugh fest. on the other hand, you say the ajay's ensee of kidding around about deaths of american diplomats troubles you. >> it says to me you demean the presidency. what we lose on this, president obama is great on the shows but we lose the gettysburg address, that end of the presidency, when you can speak to better angels and elevate us, he is taking us into late night tv on the couch instead of to gettysburg and that's a danger because we need that, too, from a president. >> these days the gettysburg address would be way too long for television, you would get a ten second sound bite. >>> still to come, "the new y
, the impressions, the jokes. and abc's jon karl shows us the perils. >> i can't, the third one, i can't. sorry. oops. >> reporter: some debate moments just don't need late-night comedians to be memorable. for the rest, there's "saturday night live." >> let me just sum up. on track. stay the course. 1,000 points of light. >> governor dukakis rebuttal. >> i can't believe i'm losing to this guy. >> reporter: over the years, the "snl" parodies have been more memorable sometimes than the debates themselves. >> can i call you joe? >> of course. >> okay, because i practiced a couple of zingers where i call you joe. >> okay. >> reporter: when you think of palin facing off against biden, you're probably most likely to think of this. >> you know, john mccain and i, we're a couple of mavericks, and gosh darn it, we're going to take that maverick energy right to washington and we're going to use it to fix this financial crisis. >> reporter: the real al gore was so stiff in his first debate -- >> i will put medicare and social security in a lockbox. >> reporter: -- his staff made him watch this. >> one of
